Warfare, promises and nightmares
Fighting all the time, and flying through the sky
Hope to all you plan to rescue
Life is in your hands, the people calling out your name
The city never sleeps alone, give him what he wants
But powered up by faith you go, batting off their taunts
Those pretty words you tell me when they're counting down from ten
To come and take you off your knees, will you still be my friend?
But if the wolves get hungry now you're counting down from zero
To be the one who saves the day, will you still be my hero?
Making, casting out and breaking
All that's come before, the writing's on the wall
Cold feet lurking down the side street
Scared of stepping out, cos now it's darker here
A rampant catastrophe, while we're screaming from below
You're not putting out the flames and now the fire grows ohh
Will you still be my hero?
